The sixth generation of the phablet that made phablets a thing is coming on August 2, and the Unpacked event can't come soon enough. Named Galaxy Note7, because... marketing, the successor to the Note5 won't be a revolutionary upgrade, but rather a calculated logical step in the right direction, like the Galaxy S7 was for the S-series earlier this year.
A larger battery (initially rumored to be 4,000mAh, but latest data points to 3,500mAh), waterproofing, ample storage (expandable, too) - the Note7 is addressing chief pain points of the current model. Okay, the IR emitter is likely gone for good, get over it.
But there's more - add an iris scanner to the list of key specs, and bring some of those curves from the S7 edge back into the Note line, where they originated with the Galaxy Note Edge. If only Samsung had stretched those 5.7 inches to a nice round 6.0.
Samsung sends out event invitations for Samsung unpacked. The company will announce its newest iteration of the Galaxy Note lineup, the Note 7.
It's already confirmed that the upcoming Galaxy Note will be unveiled at an event scheduled for August 2.
The phone will be available in Black Onyx, Silver Titanium, and Blue Coral. The new gold variant leaks for the first time.
The iris scanner feature works best at a distance of between 25-35cm.
Bonus: a 3D render of the curved-screened Galaxy Note7 in blue.
According to the information he shared, the Note7 will sport a 5.7" QHD Super AMOLED display, and feature a 12MP rear and 5MP front camera.
The flat prototype also features a flat back.
The leak also reveals that the device weighs in at 169g, meaning it's lighter than its predecessor.
The leaks offer a clear view of what is allegedly the bundled Note7 charging kit, as well as a glimpse at a total of three front panel color options.
This has surfaced through a public benchmark database.
New ones and the ones from circulating renders too.
Yeah u know we're just waiting for them to grab a hold of it to put it through the ringer

MicroSD card reader via OTG or microUSB memory via OTG is better than the one that is embedded inside the plastic phone that needs to be switch off and do some acrobatic process every time you need to transfer the card to other phones. Such hassle!
